Is there a way or a need to authorize an iPad to play digital copies of movies?  Over the past month, i've bought a few movies that have the downloadable digital copy option. I tried to physically transfer and also tried to sync through the iPad screen within iTunes the following movies: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Captain America, The Big Lebowski, and Transformers Dark of the Moon to transfer to my iPad, and I get a dialogue box that says: "Some of the items in the iTunes library were not copied to the iPad because you are not authorized for them on this computer." Then it lists those movies I just mentioned and refuses to put them on my iPad. I had bought the X-Men First Class and the THOR movies, and both those digital copies transferred just fine. My iMac that the iPad is hooked up to is authorized, and I didnt think that you had to or even could authorize an iPad. At least I didnt see an option for it within the settings panel.

I even bought the concert "Pearl Jam: The Kids are twenty" through iTunes ON my ipad, and when i just recently updated to the latest OS on my iPad, it took all my movies and music off, and when i went to put the Pearl Jam concert back on my iPad, it gave me that same authorization dialogue box and refused to transfer the film to my iPad. Which makes no sense because it played fine on my iPad after i downloaded it FROM my iPad.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
